Review: The Terminal

Another Spielberg/Hanks collaboration, which often result in fine end products, and even if they screw up, they’re still satisfying. So also this one. The movie takes off just fine (a foreign playing Tom Hanks just begs for sympathy), and the economy class flight is also fine (topically figuratively speaking, of course). No high points, no deeper meaning, no controversial topics. Just a crazy idea worked out to a full soft comedy/drama script. Acting is done just fine, and the direction is done with experienced technical skills. During the landing however, the plane somehow outruns the landing strip by a few miles (again, figuratively speaking), because the long stretched ending bears nothing extra except the predictable. All in all, a fine product for light entertainment.7+.

    I found it a bit disappointing. I would give it a lower grade. 😕

    I agree with the review of the air traffic controller (figuratively speaking).
